I'm sorry, but I have to ask. Does your mail client not download all your mail and show you which mailboxes have new messages? I can't conceive of using a mail client that doesn't do this -- without it, automated filtering is useless, because as you said you would have to check every folder to see if there are new messages in it.

My mail client shows the number of unread messages next to each mail folder, except for those that have no unread messages. I do not have to click on each folder to cause this to happen.
